Is Teixeira really an upgrade for the Angels?

Marcel thinks so. The rest of the year projection for Teixeira is .287/.379/.521. Casey Kotchman, traded to the Braves for Tex, is at .281/.348/.438. That’s over 100 points of OPS. Both are supposed to be good fielders, so we’ll call that a wash. But since the Angels have the AL West all but wrapped up, so this is an upgrade for the postseason. Long-term, it’s hard to call this a win for the Angels, but if Tex has some postseason heroics, all will be forgiven.
